Degrees of Difficulty: Boosting College Success in New York City

A new report from the Center for an Urban Future urges Mayor de Blasio and Governor Cuomo to take new steps to boost graduation rates at New York City’s public and community colleges. Degrees of Difficulty: Boosting College Success in New York City finds that while New York City has made enormous progress with its high school graduation rate, the city still has a massive college success problem. According to the report, far too many of the students who enroll in the city’s community colleges and four-year colleges do not earn a credential. Indeed, just 22 percent of students at the city’s community college students graduate in three years, while only 55 percent of the students at CUNY’s senior colleges graduate in six years.
